Two for the show


Day two of NaPoWriMo and the prompt is… ‘a poem that tells a lie’.



I sit and watch

the clock.

The tick, tock drives me insane

They say my brain has crumbled

like cake.

I used to bake – scones, tarts


Now I do nothing

but stare.

I am aware, but they don’t see

that inside – here – I’m still me.

My mouth won’t work as I want it to,

tongue sticks to the roof

like glue.

I tear it away and say my piece

well, I used to at least.

Now I am silent – quiet and still

When words come wrong

they assume you’re ill.
